Have you ever heard anyone refer to Africa as a country or make statements as though Africans have a homogeneous culture? My husband and I worked very hard when raising our children in the United States to make sure they were exposed to the beautiful diversity of the cultures of a variety of African nations. This list highlights stories that emanate from the eastern region of the African continent. (For our list of children’s books from West Africa CLICK HERE.)
1. BEATRICE’S GOAT (WESTERN UGANDA)
7. MY ROWS AND PILES OF COINS (TANZANIA)
9. THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND (MALAWI)
